Storyline

Frivolity and luxury have undermined Stella Wentworth's womanhood. She elopes with Carl Dixon, a poor, hardworking youth, but becomes dissatisfied with love in a cottage. Her dissatisfaction is encouraged by her father and Albert Fowler, an unsuccessful suitor and finally, following the birth of her baby, she is persuaded by them to desert her husband and infant for Fowler. Fowler proves an evil genius. Stella, upon her disillusionment, returns to Carl's cottage to seek forgiveness and go back to him and her child. She enters the little home to find Carl kneeling over the dying infant. It was too late to rectify her great mistake. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
